Mistletoe

European Mistletoe, Viscum album, is just one of about 1500 species of mistletoe around the world. Most are tropical or subtropical and the mistletoe plant family doesn’t extend very far into the northern hemisphere. In Europe as a whole we have about 4-6 species, depending on how you count the subspecies but in northern Europe we have just one – the true mistletoe of ancient legend, Viscum album
